One Toronto Blue Jays fan might spend the night in a jail cell. During the seventh inning of Tuesday’s American League wild card game, a fan threw a can of beer at Baltimore Orioles outfielder Hyun Soo Kim as he was attempting to make an inning-ending catch in left field.

The can missed Kim by a few feet, and he was able to make the play and end the inning. After making the play, Kim looked over to his left to see what flew by his head as he made the catch.

Center fielder Adam Jones was not as calm about the whole situation. Jones immediately started yelling at the opposing fans, and gestured toward the umpire to make sure the fan in question was ejected from the contest.

That caused manager Buck Showalter to come out of the dugout and discuss the incident with the umpires.

Following the contest, Jones told reporters the incident was “as pathetic as it gets between the lines.”

He added that he hopes charges are pressed against that fan.

This is not the first time Blue Jays fans have been involved in this type of incident. Toronto fans came under fire last postseason after throwing garbage on the field after a controversial run scored in Game 5 of the ALDS.

Blue Jays fans were also involved in an eerily similar incident including a beer can and an Orioles outfielder back in 2013.

Kim wasn’t hit by the beer or injured, but it was still an awful moment. The actions of one terrible fan shouldn’t reflect an entire fanbase, but we’re still wondering if it’s too late to update our postseason fanbase rankings?
